Global electronics firms expect supply disruption caused by flooding in Thailand to continue for several quarters and the Thai operations of Japan's Toshiba Corporation are expected to resume in January at the earliest, executives said.

Toshiba has had to halt operations at nine production plants at the Bangkadi Industrial Park and another plant at the Nava Nakorn estate, both in badly flooded Pathum Thani province to the north of Bangkok.

Bangkadi Industrial Park is the major production center in Southeast Asia for Toshiba Corporation. Its factories make home appliances, semiconductors and lighting products.

"We expect to resume operations in January at the earliest," Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul, chairwoman of Toshiba Thailand, told Reuters. "We're talking about 45 days after the water recedes. But whether we achieve that is still in question."

Mr. Kobkarn, also chairwoman of the Bangkadi estate, which Toshiba owns, said a Toshiba plant in Nonthaburi province was still operating as normal.

Seagate Technology's operations in Thailand are running as normal and its production is not constrained by either internal component supplies or by its ability to assemble finished products, it said in an emailed response to Reuters queries.

More than just flower power


The International Horticultural Exposition returns to Chiang Mai next month and it promises to be an amazing showcase of gardens from around the world.

We all know Chiang Mai is the best winter destination, where we chill out in the mild breeze, admire the blue sky and inhale the fragrance of beautiful blooms. This year, it will be even more tempting, as the "Rose of Lanna" is putting on the International Horticultural Exposition: Royal Flora Ratchaphruek 2011 from November 9 to February 15.


Bangkok should have escaped the threat of being flooded, as water travelling southwards has passed its peak while preventive measures are in place and dykes around the city and along the Chao Phraya River are intact, a senior Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) official said yesterday.

"We are quite sure that Bangkok can be saved from flooding, after monitoring tide reports last week with the Department of Royal Irrigation [RID], and finding out that the influx of water travelling through many Central provinces has passed its peak, and the water volume in the Chao Phraya is 4,000 cubic metres per second, far under a critical level," said Narong Jirasappakunakorn, director for the drainage information system division of the BMA's Department of Drainage and Sewerage.

"I can assure you of that. It's not worrying. I guarantee it," he added.

On Bangkok's west, Sala Thammasop Road will act as a barrier if dykes beyond it collapse, or are destroyed by disgruntled flood victims, while many canals can accommodate water from the Tha Chin River. "This is one example of a Plan B we have," he added. Meanwhile a primary mechanism, dubbed Plan A, such as continuing drainage and existing concrete or reinforced sandbag dykes, is intact.

In case Plan B is compromised, water can still be conveyed southwards to a royally initiated catchment area in Samut Sakhon's Mahachai area connecting southern Bangkok.

From the north, water travelling along the Chao Phraya River flows down Rangsit Canal in Pathum Thani, and in case of overflow, runs into nearby Prem Prachakorn canal, to be blocked by a major road that doubles as a barrier.

Thai Cat History (Wichien-Maat)

siamese cats play.jpg

In Thailand this elegant cat is known as the Wichien-Maat which means "moon diamond" or "diamonds and gold". The Wichien-Maat, along with other cats, is named, described and illustrated centuries ago in the "Tamra Maew" book of cat poems transcribed by Martin Clutterbuck in the book Siamese Cats: Legends and Reality (2004).Over the years, the Wichien-Maat has stayed true to its original breeding, which is still seen today in Thailand, and it remains a popular cat.

Starting in the late 1800s, the Wichien-Maat was first imported to the West, starting with England, and the cats became known as "Siamese" or the "Royal Cat of Siam", after the name of the ruling dynasty in Thailand at that time. Cat fanciers were impressed with the graceful, "marten-faced" cats so very different from the cobby, rounder native breeds and longhairs. Western breeders wanted to emphasize and augment the qualities that made the cats so different and through selective breeding, they developed an increasingly elongated, angular, finer-boned type of Siamese. This "modern" or "show-style" type of Siamese dominated in the show halls beginning in the latter half of the 20th century. As the new look increased in popularity, some breeders in England, Europe, and North America continued to preserve the look of the old-style Siamese first imported, and the cat still commonly seen today in Thailand as the Wichien-Maat.


Chulalongkorn's memorial day

Phra Bat Somdet Phra Poramintharamaha Chulalongkorn Phra Chunla Chom Klao Chao Yu Hua or Rama V (20 September 1853-23 October 1910) was the fifth monarch of Siam under the House of Chakri. He was known to the Siamese of his time as Prha Phuttha Chao Luang. He is consicered one of the greatest kings of Siam. His reign was characterized by the modernization of Siam, immense government and social reforms, and territotial cessons to the British Empire and French Indochina. As Siam was threatened by Western expansionism, Chulalongkorn, through his policies and acts, managed to save Siam from being colonized. All his reforms were decicated to Siam's insurance of survival in the midst of Western colonialisn, so that Chulalongkorn earned the epithet Phra Piya Maharat.

Songkran falls in the hottest time of the year in Thailand, at the end of the dry season. Until 1888 the Thai New Year was the beginning of the year in Thailand; thereafter 1 April was used until 1940. 1 January is now the beginning of the year. The traditional Thai New Year has been a national holiday since then.
